Last night, I had a dream in which I was pregnant and I was carrying the baby in a very peculiar way. Click here to see a drawing of what my stomach looked like. And in my dream, every time the baby moved, my stomach moved, too -- sort of like when a dog rolls around under a bed sheet. I mean, it moved a lot. I don't remember much else, other than I went into labor and it was quite painful. And for some reason, I was wandering around a department store, waiting to give birth because for some reason the hospital wouldn't take me in.

Note: When I woke this morning, my belly felt very sore.

Wow... looks like that would be pretty painful!
I sincerely hope your stomach NEVER looks like that for any reason!

EEEEEW!!! That would be just creepy! Pregnancy ALREADY seems so Alien-like as it is... at least to me... I always thought it seemed much more natural to lay an egg... or... to carry it in an external pouch like a marsupial... when I stop and think of the actual mechanics of pregnancy... I always shake my head at how really ODD it is!

(You'd never know I'm trying to get pregnant, would you!!! chuckle)
